My wife and I were traveling the blue ridge parkway on our way back home from our vacation. We were looking for a place to stay and did not to stay someplace we could back home. In other words chain hotels were out of the question. We came across the website for the new river inn. It is exactly what you would think. Beautiful area, very secluded and quiet. It was extremely cheap from my experience. The guy who helped us was more than kind. I cannot comment on the service as we did not request any. I can say that there is not someone at the desk 24 hours. As long as you do not expect or need to to reach someone at all times of the night then you are golden. My main complaint would be that the hot tub didn't even fill up a quarter of the way before the hot water ran out. That was kind of dissapointing being that I am a hot tub kind of guy. Bathroom floor was a little dirty but I may be being picky. Either way I have stayed at plenty of hotels and if you want something cheap quiet and beautiful then do not pass this up.
